Organisers of the Telford Balloon Fiesta have announced its return to Telford Town Park over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

A popular event on the borough's calendar, the Fiesta provides a 'visual spectacle' with more than 30 balloons of varying shapes and sizes taking to the skies over Telford Town Park.

Telford & Wrekin Council are hopeful that this year's gathering will form part of a summer festival weekend featuring a programme of family fun and activities.

Council Leader Shaun Davies, said: “We are delighted to have Telford Balloon Fiesta return once again to our fabulous Town Park.

“It will provide an opportunity for people to get together with friends and family (restrictions permitting) for a fantastic day out that we have all been missing for far too long now. We want everyone to come together to celebrate after a very tough year. The Fiesta will hopefully reignite our calendar of much loved events that unfortunately had to be put on hold due to the pandemic.”
